Hello! I am an associate professor in the School of Computer Science at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Canada. I am also Associate Director of the Carleton Computer Security Lab.
In Fall 2013 and Winter 2014 I will be teaching COMP 2406: Fundamentals of Web Applications. (Note that these offerings differ considerably from the version I taught in Winter 2013). In Winter 2014 I will also be teaching COMP 4000/5102: Distributed Operating Systems, which I last taught in Winter 2011.In the past I have taught the undergraduate courses COMP 3000: Operating Systems (Fall 2012, many other times) and COMP 1501: Introduction to Computer Game Design. I have also taught graduate courses in Operating System and Web Security (Fall 2012), Biological Approaches to Computer Security (Winter 2012, Winter 2005), and Intrusion Detection (Winter 2011).
I am broadly interested in the areas of computer security, operating systems, artificial life, and complex adaptive systems. For more information on my research, please refer to these pages:
I am currently formally advising the following graduate students:
Prospective Students: At this time I have a large number of graduate students under my supervision; thus, currently I am not taking on any new students. If you feel you are truly exceptional, feel free to try and change my mind. After all, I am always looking for students who are passionate about ideas and research, are interested in computer security and/or complex adaptive systems, and are willing to work hard exploring "crazy" ideas. But given my finite supply of time and money, though, don't be surprised when I say no. My apologies in advance.
My email address is at the bottom of this page - this is the best way to contact me. My mailing address, phone number, and my GPG/PGP public key (to verify my emails or send me confidential information) are on this page.
Thanks for stopping by!
